ACTIVE IMAGINATION

Carl Jung several times described a technique for using imagination which allowed the spontane­ous expression of the unconscious. Jung described active imagination as a putting aside of conscious criticism while we allow our irrational to play or fantasise. In relationship to a dream, this technique can be extraordinarily helpful and re­vealing.

A way to learn the technique is to take a dream in which a fairly defined person appears. It can be a child or adult. One then sits in a quiet situation alone, or with a sym­pathetic listener, and imagines or feels oneself back in the dream. One does not need to develop clear images unless these come easily. Just holding the idea of the dream is often sufficient. Then in a playful way develop a conversation with the dream person. Ask them what they are doing; why they appear in your dream; what do they represent of yourself? With a little practice the dream characters can come to life for you if you can let yourself play or free-wheel a little.

As we learn active imagination, it can give us other ways of entering into the life of our dreams. We can imagine ourself as the dream character, or even as the objects or animals, and allow ourself to experience and speak from their viewpoint. We can enter the dream and carry it forward from where it slopped, imagining what would satisfy us, thus becoming more active in dealing with our own inner and outer life. See dream processing. ...

Symbol: The carnation represents passion and is seen in many pictures of Madonnas.

Vision: Dreaming about carnations: your love life is in excellent shape and your opportunities at work are good. In a man’s dream, the image of the carnation—and flowers in general— often refer to women who can be bought. Maybe he is hoping for such an adventure—a desire he can only admit to himself through flowers. Picking a carnation: thoughtless actions on your part will create a crisis with a friend. Looking at a wilted carnation: a close relationship will come to an end.

DAMNATION

Your dreaming mind may at times employ sinister symbolism to address what it perceives to be the darker side of human nature. It has a wealth of material to call upon from both religion and mythology. There may be imps from hell to drag you into a fiery torment, demons of plague and pestilence, Beelzebub the ‘Lord of the Flies’, Asmodeus the demon of anger and lust, and a host of other demons, fiends and evil spirits in the form of toads, serpents, hobgoblins and elves. Each represents darker aspects of your own nature, perhaps a fear of the unknown that is not expressed in waking life, perhaps your frustrated desires and loss of control. Dreams of the devil himself (or modern representations of evil such as Darth Vader from Star Wars or Lord Voldemort from the Harry Potter books) may be seen as a representation of your dark, unconscious and baser urges. For Jungians, such a figure would be the ultimate shadow archetype. Devil dreams tend to occur when people are breaking with tradition in some way. They may also be related to evil or negative influences within yourself, possibly linking to a recent or impending decision or action of yours in waking life. See also Devil entry in RELIGION.

Monsters may present, in hideous form, untamed impulses that fill you with disgust and loathing. By giving these impulses a monstrous rather than a human form, you can evade personal responsibility for them. Many dreamers report feelings of a great weight on their chest and a sense of great evil.

Sometimes the dreamer sees a figure who is sexually rapacious. These figures are known as incubi and succubi and they are demons in the form of imps.

They were often included in paintings in the medieval period and symbolize the uncontrolled world of dreams and desire.

If you are able to kill your dream demon or evil spirit, this may help you resolve your innermost fears in waking life. See also NIGHTMARES; SPIRITS AND GHOSTS.... The Element Encyclopedia

Because the unconscious has a powerful faculty for synthesising our experience, it frequently arrives at a sense of what we most wish for or want to create through our life.

Yet we may not have become aware of what has been realised unconsciously; it may be depicted by a place we are heading towards, or a goal; a destination we do not remember.

DOMINATION

Dreams in which one partner dominates the other often have sexual overtones.

If you are in the role of dominator, this may mask sexual insecurity; if you are in the role of the submissive, this may mask incestuous desire for a parent. On the other hand, such dreams may stem from the strong desire to gain the upper hand in a relationship. Whips often symbolize a desire for, or fear of, domination in dreams. A similar interpretation can be attributed to accompanying sadomasochistic equipment such as silver chains, leather clothing and straps, and black boots and heels. Fetishes are a fixation on an external object without which there would be no sex act, and in dreams they can highlight fear, immaturity and a lack of libido... The Element Encyclopedia

EXAMINATION / DIAGNOSIS

Examination and diagnosis in dreams, if favorable, indicates that you feel secure and satisfied in waking life.

If you are diagnosing illness in a dream, this points to insecurity and an over-sensitive approach to life.

If you dream that you are diagnosed with a fatal illness or have a fatal illness, it might be worthwhile seeing your doctor for a check-up as illness has been diagnosed in this way before; typically, however, such dreams represent any condition or situation that you feel is taking you away from the life you were meant to live.

EXAMINATION / TEST

An examination or test in a dream symbolizes a time for reflection and evaluation. The subject of the exam or test will give further insight into the theme for reflection.

Such dreams tend to occur when you are feeling anxious or challenged in waking life. You may, however, dream of a great test or another fine performance. This may occur when you feel you are doing well in waking life. Not limited to exams, the dreamer may envision doing precise spins on the ice or scoring a sensational goal.

A common dream involves turning up naked to an examination, which may point to a fear of social humiliation. A feeling of powerlessness to control your life may be suggested by a dream in which you arrive late for an examination or hand in a blank paper at the end of the exam.

HALLUCINATION / HALLUCINOGEN

Hallucinations can occur quite naturally without the use of psychotropic drugs such as peyote or LSD. We all have the innate ability to suffer from hallucinations and, according to Freud, one of the definitions of a dream is precisely its hallucinogenic quality. Whilst asleep, we can create full sensory, vocal and emotional experiences in our dreams that most of us believe are real at the time. A waking hallucination is merely an experience of a dream occurring with our eyes open. The voices heard and images seen, although appearing outside of us, are no more exterior than the images in our dreams.

The hypnagogic state is that state between being awake and falling asleep during which the mind is most receptive to ideas, images, sounds, feelings, impressions and intuition. It also the time when people are most likely to see ghostlike figures. (It should not be confused with the hypnopompic state, which is a transition state of semi-consciousness between sleeping and waking.) Some dream experts believe that the sketchy imagery typical of these states can be helpful to the individual in terms of self-understanding. Images are often presented through the individual’s own set of symbols and once interpreted symbols can provide answers to problems and even alert one to future events.

Some believe that taking the time to record these images, feelings and sounds can be just as helpful as recording dream imagery.... The Element Encyclopedia

Read More...

The Element Encyclopedia

HALLUCINATIONS

1- When dreaming, there is an hallucinatory quality about everything that we see. We usually accept what we experience as real and in the actual dream state do not question. Scenes can change as quickly as the blink of an eye, faces can change, we can be looking at one thing then a few seconds later realise we are looking at something completely different. This is totally acceptable within the dream reality.

It is only when we consider the dream afterwards that we realise how odd this may be. During dreams, things can take on qualities of other objects and of other feelings. Dreams can crcate a reality of their own, they do the unexpected - which in normal waking life would be totally illogical and surreal. Within this dream world we need to take a note of what is happening. We do not watch these with amusement, it seems simply that we observe what is going on. Even our own actions can take on an oddness. We may be doing things in a dream which in waking life we would never expect ourselves to do. Freed from the logical quality that mentors our ordinary everyday life, we can be liberated to create a totally different awareness of our own abilities, of our thought patterns and even our own past. We can often dream that we have done things in the past which we have never done, or we can prepare ourselves to do things in the future which again we would never expect to do.

2- Psychologically freeing the mind so it can ‘roam’ under its own speed allows hidden memories, images and thoughts to surface in such a way that we can handle the input when perhaps in real life we may not have been able to do so. We create a reality which suits an action, rather than creating an action which suits the reality.

For instance, an abused child may displace the activity into some kind of response that would be acceptable, not allowing the reality of the abuse to come through until such times as he or she was able to come to terms with it.

3- The hallucination that we experience in dreams can also be direct messages from the unconscious.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

HALLUCINATIONS, HALLUCINOGENS

Example: ‘1 dream insects are dropping either on me from the ceiling of our bedroom, or crawling over my pillow. My long-suffering husband is always woken when I sit bolt upright in bed, my eyes wide open and my arm pointing at the ceiling. I try to brush them off. I can still see them—spiders or woodlice. I am now well aware it is a dream. But no matter how hard I stare the insects are there in perfect detail. I am not frightened, but wish it would go away’ (Sue D). Sue’s dream only became a hallucination when she opened her eyes and continued to see the insects in per­fect clarity.

A hallucination can be experienced through any of the senses singly, or all of them together. So one might have a hallucinatory smell or sound.

To understand hallucinations, which are quite common without any use of drugs such as alcohol, LSD or cannabis, one must remember that everyone has the natural ability to produce such images. One of the definitions of a dream according to Freud is its hallucinatory quality. While asleep we can create full sensory, vocal, motor and emotional expenence in our dream. While dreaming we usually accept what we experience as real.

A hallucination is an experience of the function which produces dreams’ occur­ring while we have our eyes open.

The voices heard, people seen, smells smelt, although appearing to be outside us, are no more exterior than the things and images of our dreams. With this information one can understand that much classed as psychic phenomena and religious experience is an encoun­ter with the dream process. That does not, of course, deny its imponance.

There are probably many reasons why Sue should experi­ence a hallucination and her husband not. One might be that powerful drives and emotions might be pushing for attention in her life. Some of the primary drives are the reproductive drive, urge towards independence, pressure to meet uncon­scious emotions and past trauma and fears, any of which, in order to achieve their ends, can produce hallucinations.

A hallucination is therefore not an ‘illusion’ but a means of giving information from deeper levels of self. Given such names as mediumship or mystical insight, in some cultures or individuals the ability to hallucinate is often rewarded so­cially.

Drugs such as LSD, cannabis, psilocybin, mescaline, pey- ote and opium can produce hallucinations. This is sometimes because they allow the dream process to break through into consciousness with less intervention.

If this occurs without warning it can be very disturbing.

The very real dangers are that unconscious content, which in ordinary dreaming breaks through a threshold in a regu­lated way, emerges with little regulation. Fears, paranoid feel­ings, past traumas, can emerge into the consciousness of an individual who has no skill in handling such dangerous forces. Because the propensity of the unconscious is to create images, an area of emotion might emerge in an image such as the devil. Such images, and the power they contain, not being integrated in a proper therapeutic setting, may haunt the indi­vidual, perhaps for years. Even at a much milder level, ele­ments of the unconscious will emerge and disrupt the person’s ability to appraise reality and make judgments. Un­acknowledged fears may lead the drug user to rationalise their reasons for avoiding social activity or the world of work. See ESP and dreams; dead lover in husband under family.

ILLUMINATION

If you see strange and weird illuminations in your dreams, you will meet with disappointments and failures on every hand. Illuminated faces, indicate unsettled business, both private and official.

To see the heavens illuminated, with the moon in all her weirdness, unnatural stars and a red sun, or a golden one, you may look for distress in its worst form. Death, family troubles, and national upheavals will occur.

To see children in the lighted heavens, warns you to control your feelings, as irrevocable wrong may be done in a frenzy of feeling arising over seeming neglect by your dear ones.

To see illuminated human figures or animals in the heavens, denotes failure and trouble; dark clouds overshadow fortune.

To see them fall to the earth and men shoot them with guns, many troubles and obstacles will go to nought before your energy and determination to rise.

To see illuminated snakes, or any other creeping thing, enemies will surround you, and use hellish means to overthrow you. ... Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation

You may have been given a second chance to regain what was previously thought to be lost.

REINCARNATION

If, in dreams, you have the sensation of living a previous life (or that you reincarnate as something or someone), it means that you need to go beyond your current circumstances. The curiosity that you have to know the future encourages this kind of dream. In Asia it is believed that once man has reached an appropriate level of spirituality, he can remember his past lives. These come to human memory through meditation and through dreams.

The Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone is convinced that he lived during the French Revolution; the singer Engelbert Humperdinck believes that in a past life he was a Roman emperor; and a Californian seer told the pop star Tina Turner that she is the incarnation of the wife of an Egyptian pharaoh....

REINCARNATION

Throughout his life, Jung admitted his strong fascination with the theory of reincarnation but never declared himself for or against the idea. We simply don’t know whether he believed in past lives, nor can we say whether dreams reflect images from past lives. There are certain dreams set in a past time or place unfamiliar to you that you may find extremely hard to explain away as being merely symbolism, metaphor or allegory. There are those who do believe the dream state can be a gateway to past lives and that dreams featuring events before you were born are snapshots of past lives. It is said that these kinds of dreams, also known as karmic dreams, are incredibly real and intense. There’s a certain ’grand dream’ feeling that often accompanies them.

Even as the dream is taking place, you may be feeling a sense of awe and wonder. You awaken knowing that this dream is very special and that it relates to something about your distant past. There’s an inescapable feeling that the dream is about a past life.

In most cases, it is impossible to prove beyond doubt that a dream relates to a past life experience, as your dream is unlikely to give you the facts needed to prove them with public records of births, marriages and deaths. In the end, it simply comes down to a gut feeling, an unshakable belief that comes from deep within you. Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, what is important here is what you take from the dream as a lesson for your current life.

If the goal of reincarnation is to improve karma—the Buddhist principle of cosmic reward or punishment for the things you have done or left undone in past lives—then this dream offers you an opportunity for personal growth.... The Element Encyclopedia

TOILET AND ELIMINATION THEMES

Elimination in dreams can symbolize release and self-expression. When we urinate or eliminate, we are ridding ourselves of bodily waste and when these actions occur in dreams your unconscious is referring to the removal of emotional waste, such as unhappy memories. So, if you dream of rushing to the bathroom, what are you trying to flush out of your system in the real world? Or do you wish you could purge yourself of destructive, negative emotions such as jealousy or envy? Is there something you need to let go of in your waking life? Did you find it hard to let go in your dream or did everything go smoothly. The answer will help you see how emotionally blocked or constipated you are.

Perhaps you were searching frantically for a toilet in your dream, but couldn’t find one.

If this is the case, you need to find the catalyst for emotional release. Dreams about being clogged-up, or about a lack of toilets, are not so much about emotional baggage as about a lack of proper outlets for your own creativity and selfexpression. They can also suggest that you are the kind of person who takes on the problems of other people, leaving no room for your own.

Dreams about frustrating attempts to find a toilet could also suggest that you have over-committed yourself in waking life, and that there is no opportunity for you to express your own feelings and talents. On the other hand, you may also feel that you have been taken advantage of or dumped on by someone in waking life? Finally, such dreams may also be due simply to a physical need to pee in the night.

Other elimination dreams include using a toilet in a strange place, in front of people or in the middle of a conversation. In such dreams, the elimination represents the expression of an opinion or insight unsuitable for public consumption, or not appropriate to the situation. It could also reveal concern that you might have been too impulsive in the way you have expressed yourself, and your dreaming mind is urging you to bear in mind the possible impact of your words.

If you can’t find a private toilet in your dream, perhaps you are living or working in a crowded environment and your dreaming mind is compensating for a lack of privacy and personal space in your waking life.

If you dream of a bathroom and a toilet, this may suggest your need to clean up your sexual attitudes or attitude to others and yourself.

If you put anything down a toilet in your dream, take careful note of what it is, as it will symbolize what your dreaming mind considers to be the least important or unpleasant aspect of yourself or your experience. Urine suggests letting go of strained feelings or the release of sexual feelings. Feces indicate letting go of parts of yourself that you need to let go of. It can also indicate new beginnings, as excrement makes great fertilizer. Evacuation of the bowel usually highlights a need to be free of responsibility, or sometimes the need to be uninhibited.

If you are eliminating over someone in your dream, this can indicate a repressed desire to belittle that person or feel superior.

Playing with excrement can represent money, so playing with it in a dream may suggest anxiety about money and fear of responsibility.

If the excrement is transformed into an animal, this suggests that the dreamer is coming to terms with the fact that he or she is responsible for managing their own instincts.

If you are vomiting in your dream, this indicates a discharging of unpleasant feelings, or experiencing something unpleasant. Finally, if you realize you are sweating in a dream, you are alerted to the amount of energy you may be expending handling your own emotions and fears in waking life.

URINATION

The release of toxicity is the primary meaning of this symbol. Urination in a dream may be pointing to a buildup of negative thoughts or unexpressed anger, hence the phrase “pissed off.” There is a sexual subculture in which urinating on someone or being urinated on by another is considered highly erotic.

It is also a symbol of the hierarchy of power between two individuals. In sexual role play, while it may appear that the dominant party holds more power by virtue of the act itself, in actuality the receiver, or “bottom,” is the one with the control in any interaction. Therefore, in any dream involving this sort of activity, consider that if you are the giver, you may be experiencing toxic backlash in some area in life where you are being insensitive or lacking compassion.

If you are on the receiving end of urination, then you may want to consider where in your life you may be compromising yourself through manipulation or some other hidden motivation. There can be a physiological function involved in this dream image, and the body may assist in the unconscious process: if you have to pee, you just might dream about it first. This does not alter the interpretive meaning, and such a dream deserves investigation of its imagery as much as any other.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
